** That same night, Wrestling/RomanReigns, who many believe was ''never'' going to get over because of the terrible Cena-like booking he's had to endure for the last ten months, managed to get over. It turns out all he had to do was beat the crap out of Wrestling/TripleH. The next night, Philadelphia, who booed both him and ''[[Wrestling/DwayneJohnson The Rock]]'' out of the building eleven months before, happily cheered for him [[spoiler:and even marked out when he won the title that same night]]. So somehow, Reigns went from one of the biggest heat magnets in wrestling and the unintentional embodiment of everything the fans consider wrong with WWE, to being over enough to get the smarkiest crowd on the planet cheering for him in the span of twenty-four hours. Smarks are outright baffled over what happened, even if they are happy for him.

* Wrestling/RomanReigns was pretty much designated as the next Wrestling/JohnCena, despite the active resistance of the fans. That meant he would always win and only lose via shenanigans. It seemed nothing would change Wrestling/VinceMcMahon's mind about that. And then, not even three months after they finally gave him his moment at ''Wrestling/WrestleMania 32'' to the disgust of the majority of the fanbase, [[EpicFail he violated the Wellness Policy]]. That meant the company had to get the title off him ASAP before he went on a forced vacation. He subsequently lost clean to Wrestling/SethRollins for the title, and then Wrestling/DeanAmbrose, of whom many were convinced the company was ''never'' going to pull the trigger on, cashed in his newly won Wrestling/MoneyInTheBank contract to finally become WWE Champion. After setting up Wrestling/TheShield triple threat for ''Battleground'' the following night, Roman was suspended. When he came back, he ate another clean pin from Wrestling/DeanAmbrose for the triple threat, much to the shock of the fans. And yet, despite this unprecedented turn of events, the IWC was ''still'' convinced Roman would get back his push soon afterwards. It wasn't until Roman ate another clean pin, at the hands of Wrestling/FinnBalor no less, who had just debuted on the main roster, to make Finn the new #1 contender for the new WWE Universal Championship, did fans realize how deep in the doghouse Reigns was.

* Possible reference to this trope in ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender''. Toph's family crest is the Flying Boar, which is, well, a boar with wings. A vision of such a creature is part of what leads Aang to her, and it may be a reference to how unlikely it would seem for a 12-year-old blind girl to be such a master bender. More specifically, said minute, 12-year-old blind girl is a master Earthbender. [[DontExplaintheJoke The majority of Earthbenders are burly men.]]

* Susan Lucci was, for a time, the DistaffCounterpart to Leonardo Dicaprio. She was nominated for the Emmy ''18 times'' for her role on ''Series/AllMyChildren'' without winning. Many made flying pig jokes when she ''did'' win her Emmy on nomination #19.
